The new Beacon-3000 on-line analyzer was shipped out to the to Citgo refinery (USA) in order to upgrade the old NIR Beacon-2000 analyzer. Petromerix® Beacon-2000 NIR Analyzer was successfully launched in 1992, as a specialty NIR analyzer dedicated to the petroleum industries. Since then, many of these are used in numerous refineries worldwide.

Comments from one of the customers: “We have not found any model maintenance to be necessary since installation in 1998. The hardware is extremely robust. It just requires cleaning of the windows about every six months. Sample conditioning is only necessary to the degree that light will show through.”

In 2009 Modcon acquired Petrometrix and developed the new generation of the NIR analyzer, the Beacon 3000. The Analyzer is located in the control room, protected from the process environment and connects via telecommunications fiber optics to up to 8 field units, which are installed up to 3 km (2 miles) away from the process. No analyzer shelter is required, the field unit uses no electricity and contains no moving parts. Modcon offers an upgrade to Beacon-3000 for existing Beacon-2000 users, at a very attractive conditions.

This solution offers greater reliability, increased speed and easier troubleshooting without a need in models rebuilding or any piping changes. The upgrade normally takes 1-2 days without any interruption to the process.
